Mar 18, 2009 | Posted by: coolncrazy | Full story: en.rian.ru

Russia's new Angara carrier rocket will start test flights in 2011, the rocket's developer said on Wednesday.

The Angara, designed to place heavy payloads into orbit, is currently under development at the Khrunichev State Space Science and Production Center.

"The work is going according to schedule. A light-class Angara will be launched in early 2011 and a heavy class rocket will be launched at the end of that year," Khrunichev's first deputy head Vasily Sychyov said.

Looks like Russia isn't ready to retire and let the Chinese try to take over their role in space using the RUssian Soyuz spacecraft.... And Russia will be launching it from the new Plesetsk Space center in RUssia instead of Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakstan... Good for Russia..

Actually Gagarin was NOT the first man in space.

RULES were established to determine the first in space, the longest flight, etc.....

The Soviets hushed up for years that Gagarin broke the rules and therefore was NOT teh first man in space.

According to the rules, Alan Shepard was the first man in space.

The rules stated that a person had to retun to earth INSIDE the craft that he left Earth in.

This, Gagarin did not do.

For the last time. Armstrong and the Apollo 11 landed in the Moon. Moon landing is more important than being the first man in space. RUSSIANS LOST THE SPACE RACE and they are still bitter and angry about it.

No it was not. Space Race was about who would made it to the farest. America landed on the moon and Russia sent Gagarin to space and some BS sputnik in orbit. RUSSIA LOST THE SPACE RACE. Funny how I don"t see Australia having a Space program even if Australia is bigger than Finland so the jokes on you loser. ;)

The difference is you are still a little guppy trying to act as a big fishy. Is it hard to swim without fins? If you stay out of water to long do you start to smell? Does the saying "Your like a fish out of water" apply to you or is it politically incorrect to mention this to you?

It is quite possible that Yuri Gagarin was NOT the first man in space, because he possibly was not the first Soviet in space!!

Soviet space achievements were usually announced AFTER the event, but not in the case of Gagarin, whose flight was used for Soviet propaganda.

There are rumors that Gagarin was in fact the second Soviet cosmonaut in space, after his flight had been rehearsed with Tupolev's son in the craft a few day before.

It's not clear yet if Tupolev's flight involved revolutions around the earth, but there are proofs of his launch in Soviet archives apparently.

Tupolev himself never said anything about it, but the story appeared in the Soviet media once and was never repeated. Yuri Gagarin could have been chosen from a group of trainees cosmonauts for his good look.
Most of the Soviet space programme was very secretive.

But that the first man in space was a Soviet, there is no doubt.

Of course, there will always be some people arguing that the earth is flat ...

There is a rule-making body for space records. According to the rules, a person must return to Earth in the craft he went up in. This, Gagarin did not do. The Soviets hushed it up for years because they knew the rules.

But years ago, the Russians admitted that Gagarin was NOT the first man in space according to the rules.

Alan Shepard was the first man in space according to the rules.

There is a rule-making body for space records. According to the rules, a person should have a red star on his rocket. Alan Shepard had no it. Americans knew the rules and years ago they admitted that there was no Americans on the Moon or in space according to the rules. And only Soviet and Chinese guys were in space according to the rules and Gagarin was the first. So go now and kill yourself, loser. LOL

On the contrary, the Russians are proud of winning the space race. It is just you and that that other gay guy from Long Island who are still bitter and angry about it.
Are you really sure that Armstrong and the Apollo landed on the moon?

Alan Shepard was carried into orbit in the Freedom 7 spacecraft. Unlike Gagarin's complete orbit of the earth, Shepard's flight was much shorter. Shepard's whole flight lasted just fifteen minutes.
